Tablescape Thursday – Clear Crystal With Blue and White


For this week’s table setting I decided on using clear crystal with blue and white for a cool summer look. Touches of yellow bring additional bright notes.

Blue and white placemats and matching napkins are a gift from my youngest sister. They are made from "Porcelain" by Waverly. Squared silvertone chargers hold Royal Tudor "Orchid" by Grindley dinner plates, topped with clear Arcoroc crystal "Fleur" plates.
Napkins are folded in a fan shape and placed in ceramic daffodil napkin rings.
The flatware is Oneida "Raphael". Clear goblets – Vendange from France. Blue goblets – "Virginia" by Fostoria. Here is a view of one place setting: [Note: the chargers are a soft silvertone, though they are photographing as something else!]
One corner of the table holds a yellow ceramic pitcher is on crystal and "Orchid" dessert plates.
The centerpiece includes a blue and white pitcher by Godinger set on a white runner with two yellow napkins underneath for a hint of yellow. Clear crystal candlesticks by Oscar de La Renta was a graduation gift from friends in 1988. The pair hold white taper candles with blue design.
Clear crystal tulip votives hold yellow lemons and pears
Four crystal crystal salt cellars with tiny spoons contribute to the sparkle.
At another corner a clear glass divided dish in apple shape sits on a yellow ceramic pineaple trivet. A clear crystal butter dish is nearby.
Since I have only four of the napkin rings, for the settings at the ends I put the napkin under the glass plates and added an "Orchid" bowl.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope your found the tablescape pleasing. Do visit again soon, and please leave a comment.
Be sure to visit our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more Tablescape Thursday posts.

Lovely job. I did a blue and white setting today, too! Meant for it to be in the garden, but mother nature suggested otherwise! lol! Am so jealous of those napkins ... thanks for the fabric pattern - I'll have to see if I can track some down. All the best, A

Hello! You'll think I'm nuts, but I clicked on your blog because I liked the name! ha! Loved your tablescape and found a wonderful surprise in it! The little apple dishes? My Mom had those when I was growing up! What a great memory to see on your table. I think blue on a table is just the best. With the pop of yellow - it's so fresh and clean.
I'll be following along from now on! Thanks for such a wonderful unexpected surprise!

I love this entire tablescape. I have that lemon pitcher too. I liked it because it so big and round!!

Never thought to use a spoon rest as a trivet and I've got lots of spoon rests. So clever!

Hi Michelle, Thanks for stopping by. By 'spoon rest' are you referring to the yellow pineapple? Because it is actually made as a trivet. i usually always put one of my pineapple-shaped trivets on each table setting. I have them in brass, ceramic and wood, silverplate, etc.
Do stop by again soon,
Carrie
